Beautiful, peaceful location. Flights are wonderful - peering out the canopy you feel like you can touch the sky! My visit was actually in 2011, not 2014.

Great experience. Local hole in the wall attraction where you can learn to fly/pilot a glider. Flight over Lake Pleasant was great!

A glider rental over the Lake Pleasant area was a real treat. Close to Phoenix in North Peoria near 74 Carefree Highway.
